If you’re looking to change your contract or save on your monthly outgoings, a SIM only deal might be for you.

What is a SIM only contract?

Instead of buying a contract that comes with a phone, a SIM only contract gives you a SIM card with minutes, texts and data included, but no phone. Just slot the SIM card into your current phone and you’re ready to go.

It’s a cheaper, simpler way to get what you want from a contract. It also means you can update your phone whenever you want.

Why would I get a SIM only contract?

It’s a good way of cutting down your monthly outgoings as SIM only deals are often slightly cheaper than standard monthly contracts.

If you’re happy with your phone but want to change the benefits of your contract or switch networks, SIM only is a good option.

Lots of people also use SIM only as a stopgap. If you know what phone you want, but it’s not on sale yet, SIM only is brilliant. The contracts can be 30 days long, and can be renewed after each 30 days. That way you can swap to your dream phone as soon as it’s out.

Are there any other benefits of a SIM only contract?

You can get a SIM only contract for 30 days or 12 months, and renew it whenever you want. It means you don’t need to commit to a 24 month contract if that’s not what you want.

You can keep your number with your new contract too, and they’re available on all the major UK networks as well.
